PineCone—the Piedmont Council of Traditional Music, is a private, nonprofit, charitable membership organization dedicated to preserving, presenting and promoting traditional music, dance and other folk performing arts.
PineCone was formed in 1984 to honor the traditional music heritage that makes North Carolina unique. PineCone is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are Triangle citizens.
PineCone is supported by the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County and is funded in part by the City of Raleigh based on the recommendations of the Raleigh Arts Commission and by the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency.
PineCone rents permanent offices in downtown Raleigh.
